Montana Reports Brown Trout Decline Across Southwest Rivers

“Southwest Montana has a brown trout problem. The species is dropping in numbers across a wide range of the region’s rivers, biologists are stumped as to the cause, and a looming summer of drought is putting on the heat. It’s all hands on deck, and the experts are out for solutions.”
